Bears Hang On Against Giants

The Bears got two big interceptions from Tim Jennings, and managed to hang on against the winless New York Giants.
It wasn't their prettiest game of the season, but the Chicago Bears kept forcing turnovers and were able to hold off the winless New York Giants, 27-21.

Eli Manning continued to struggle for New York. He threw an interception to Zack Bowman on the first drive of the game, and another, this time a pick-six to Tim Jennings on the ensuing drive. After rallying during the middle of the game, Manning against was picked off by Jennings, this time deep in Bears territory in the fourth quarter.

The Giants biggest weapon in Chicago was big running back Brandon Jacobs. Jacobs started in place of David Wilson, and ran for a rugged 106 yards on 22 carries and two touchdowns. Manning finished with 239 yards passing and a touchdown.

Jay Cutler had another clean outing. He compiled 236 yards passing, two touchdowns, zero interceptions and wasn't sacked during the win. Just four days after expressing frustration with both himself and the team's offense, wide receiver Brandon Marshall was back in the limelight, with nine receptions, 87 yards and two scores.

The Bears improve to 4-2, and have 10 days to rest and heal. They head to Washington to play the Redskins on October 20th.
